Gloria Coker Solo Exhibit

Gloria's fall exhibition titled "Let Go and Enjoy” features her vivid acrylic paintings involving people enjoying their passions, including music, dance and festivals. 

"The more I let loose and throw paint around, the better I feel. Perhaps I am subconsciously rebelling against our more digitized, pixelated world, but I actually enjoy the feel of the wet paint and my ability to create a “happy accident” as they say in the art of watercolor where I began. I am hoping the paintings in my show reflect a certain Joi de Vivre- Joy of Life, " says Gloria.
